Walk your marriage to a new level!

One of my doctoral subjects had moved me to get on my rubber shoes and walk an hour a day for a week- just to meet one of our requirements in that class.

5.00 am – gets up, prepare myself/5.30 am meet up with classmates and our professor at the university gate/WALKS around the university for 1 hour and ends at 6.45 am/eats breakfast/takes a bath/runs to the class and gets ready for the quiz and report.

I thought to myself, “I will just do this for the sake of my requirements”.  So I painstakingly wakes up every morning to walk and later that week, my husband joined the group every morning.

  2. Increased interest in sex
  3. Better endurance

  8. Weight reduction
  9. Reduced cholesterol and improved cardiovascular fitness
